Blue screen on lcd screen

The playback head is probably dirty and cannot show the picture - the screen is blue. Run a blank tape in the tape drive and execute a record all the way through the tape. Then play back a pre-recorded tape to verify it plays back ok.

I can turn my camera on, but there is no screen or sight for recording or play edit.

normally, if you can turn the camera on everything should work including the lcd. if its just an issue with the imaging sensor, you wont see anything on the viewfinder (for the viewfinder to work you need to close the lcd screen) but should at least see the indicators, same in the lcd screen and view your videos in playback mode. if its an lcd screen issue, there would be nothing coming up in any mode the camera is set to. you can try to reset cam back to default settings (press reset while cam is on, its located on the side where you have the handstrap, just below the speaker), or do power reset (remove the batt and ac adapter for at least a minute). if still the same, your unit may require service. thanks. hope this helps.

My Handycam shows a bluish screen(DCR-HC32E)

did you happen to drop the cam? there could be a technical error with the LCD screen. take it to the nearest Sony service center and have them take a look at it. you can try resetting the cam and see if it changes anything.

This is a feature not a bug...The LCD is designed to flip the picture when you rotate the screen. This is so that you can see what you filming or be in the picture and see yourself filmed. I can't remember if it flips automatically or not. But, I would first try inverting and reverting the LCD screen to see if you can get it to detect orientation, then check and see if there is a setting to manually set the orientation of the LCD instead under the menu options.

Lost LCD Screen

You MAY just have a dirty playback head. Purchase a head cleaning tape (Bestbuy, Target, etc., for about $20) and try cleaning your playback head. Colored lines is ONE symptom of a dirty head. A blue screen is ANOTHER. I had that symptom yesterday (9/7/07), got a cleaning tape and solved the problem. I can now again see on the LCD display what I recorded on the tape. Good luck.
